I speak to many people, either managers or business owners who say a common problem is communication. Often professional people have conversations with the wrong people, such as work colleagues, family or friends. These all mean well but don't really understand the issues or frustrations that you face on a daily basis. Often, they have their own agenda, which is in conflict with what you need to focus on so they unintentionally hamper your progress and dull your spirit.
They say it’s tough at the top, but in fact every step towards that pinnacle can be one of relentless stress and unremitting pressure. Overcoming the obstacles and taking on the challenges is credit to the person who claims the prize, but who encourages you to get there and what happens next?
Whether you are a Managing Director or the latest executive it can be difficult to find the right people that will bolster your enthusiasm and give you the freedom to explore ideas, therefore plans often grind to a halt before they even get off the ground.
Eventually you end up with a pile of frustrations, a filing cabinet of regrets and a waste paper bin filled with good ideas that could have propelled you to the next level. So, you can either continue to tread water or you can start swimming the choice is yours.
